This week I have had
plenty of time to myself,
with the children vacationing with family in another state.
I've blogged about a few of the ways I've spent my time this week, getting a massage,
swimming at the pool,
and spending some time alone
and with my husband.
I have loved all of these things.
But I have to say, one of the best ways I've spent my time alone is in reading. No interruptions.
I have read a couple of books and several magazines and I have enjoyed that time so much.
Mr. Takamine and I went to the public library and my favorite book store and I can tell you, the last time I was there, I left with a sack of books and movies and not one of them were for me.
On this visit, NONE of the books
came from the juvenile section.
I am thankful for refreshing weeks like this... they help me refocus,
and allow me to realize
just how blessed I am.
